Communicating with Your Child's Teacher
When there is something you wish to discuss with your child’s teacher, please send an email or a note to the teacher requesting a time to meet. Teacher emails are available at ps39.org/staff. Our teachers have dedicated time to communicate with parents every Tuesday from 2:40- 3:30 pm. If you need assistance contacting a teacher, please contact our Parent Coordinator, Karen Herskowitz
For the safety and security of the entire PS 39 community, we ask all visitors – including parents- to follow our visitor procedures carefully.
A full-time Department of Health nurse is located in room 100B (NOTE: NEW LOCATION). If a child is ill or injured during school hours, he or she will be sent to the nurse’s office. Parent will be contacted anytime a child visit's the school nurse.
School staff members, including the nurse, are not allowed to administer any type of medication to any child unless a doctor’s order is provided on a 504 Medical Administration form. Please visit the Health Services page on the NYC Department of Education's website for more information. This form must be completed by a physician, signed by the parent and given to the school nurse before any medication can be brought to the school and/or administered.
